Well "performance first" is also pretty stupid for a company that refuses to put triple discs on a Nighthawk 750, and still uses a front drum on the Nighthawk 250.

Not all motorcyclists follow racing.

Default Re: Performance First

And they won't make the CBR900RR a 1000 because a 900 is "fundamentally better". Someday, after it's too late, Mr. Babba may come around and realize the rules have changed. Maybe they should make the 954RR, or whatever it is now, into an 1100 so they can take advantage of the last four years of being compared directly with the 1000cc bikes - but gain the displacement advantage on the other side of 1000. Then they would be free to make the CBR1100XX into an 1800cc turbo (the turbo coming from the new Honda PWC) and lay waste to anyone's claims of fastest bike. Don't forget to make the 185mph restrictor defeat a "one wire snip event" for the general public. And put a 300mph speedo on it just to make sure Suzuki closes up shop for good.

So I guess you wouldn't like, "Chicks dig men with a Rigid Fury between their legs."

Default Yes it is lame, and

they base their bikes on a Harley Davidson drive shaft? What a moron. He can't even remember to say drive TRAIN, since a Harley drive shaft is a part that only exists on XA's from WWII--"Ride To Freedom" is the kind of lameness we will get from companies run by people who don't know anything about, or care anything about motorcycles.

If it doesn't do anything and you can't hold it in your hand...you shouldn't be able to patent it. JMO.

Chicks don't dig guys who have to _purchase_ their Rigid Furies.
